How large is that file? In particular, if it's not pretty close to
23296 (2.912*8000) bytes, something is wrong.

Assuming that dmesg by itself produces reasonable-looking output (ie,
so long as dmesg itself isn't broken), this indicates your sound
hardware isn't hooked up to the audio subsystem. I would expect the
cat to /dev/audio to fail in that case - probably with some variety of
"device not configured" - but I'm regularly surprised by things that
work (or fail) in ways I did not expect.
Perhaps post a pointer to full dmesg? Someone might be able to say
something useful based on it.
